Stibnite with Calcite
Giant Yellowknife Mine, Mackenzie District, Northwest Territories, Canada
Miniature, 5.5 x 3.2 x 2.3 cm
A locality rarity: Scintillating, radial spray of intergrown Stibnite blades from the Giant Yellowknife Mine in Canada. The metallic luster is excellent, and the habit is attractive. This is the best Stibnite that I have seen from this locality. There is minor, associated Calcite. (This piece, funny enough, turned up in Brazil in the esoteric collection of Paulo Matioli. But it seemed a good way to get it to be noticed, to add to this update of Soregaroli specimens, as he had many Canadian locality pieces too)
